Knowles to Showcase its Updated & Expanded Product Line at electronica 2018

Knowles Precision Devices has confirmed its presence at the upcoming electronica 2018 event in Munich, Germany. At the event it will be showcasing its extensive and expanded range of MLC & SLC Capacitors, RF & Microwave Components, EMI Filters, Trimmer, non-magnetic components and advanced dielectric materials. The company will be on hand to discuss the extension of many MLCC lines, including the 250 HiT range for automotive under-hood applications and their much-expanded range of trimmer products.

New and evolving markets, including automotive, defense, mobile, industrial, and internet of things (IoT) are creating surges in demand for passive components. As a result, some manufacturers are unable to fulfill orders, particularly in the electric vehicle (EV) market, and are ceasing production of mature lines or slimming down ranges in favor of newer and more profitable products. Knowles Precision Devices has continued to support a range of capacitor products for automotive applications, AEC-Q200 qualified, and is poised to offer solutions not considered catalog items.

The Knowles HiT range of MLCCs is designed to meet the needs of high-voltage EV applications, with an operating temperature range of -55 to +200ºC. Specifications encompass both Stable (C0G) and ultra-stable (X7R) dielectric options in case sizes 0805 to 2220, with capacitance spread of 4.7pF to 3.3uF, and rated voltages of 16 to 630V dc. The specified max capacitor values for the 500/630V parts have recently been increased to an upper limit of 68 nF, with the addition of an 0603 case size in X7R material.

To better support customers in the medical devices industry, Knowles had recently acquired Johanson Manufacturing, and thus will also be showcasing its extended portfolio of trimmers which now include air, glass, sapphire, and PTFE dielectrics that can be used from 1 MHz to over 2 GHz, and at voltages up to 20,000 VDC. In addition, a complete line of non-magnetic components for the MRI and NMR industries, including trimmer capacitors, chip capacitors, fixed and variable inductors, and hardware, is also available.

electronica 2018 will be held from November 13-16 in Messe München, Germany. It is one of the world’s leading trade fairs and conferences for electronics. The event highlights all the latest trends in PCBs, semiconductors, sensors, connectors or displays. The comprehensive range of exhibits, international business platform, and extensive supporting program includes all different forms of latest developments and technological advancements in the field of electronics.
